Handmade Christmas Challenge






I like to get Christmas pressies organised early. This year we will spend Christmas at my Mother in laws and because it is such a HUGE family gift giving is kept to a minimum. So on that front I am off the hook to an extent!

Last week my big girl had a party to attend, so I whipped up this cushion for her lovely friend Anouk. Big girl was most impressed and declared that she would like one "just the same". Idea No. 1, cushions for each of the 3 kiddies for Christmas to go in their new bedrooms. We are in the midst of Stage 2 of renovating our house which means that our children will have their own bedrooms by Christmas time. That also means decorating and lots of lovely little gifts I can make for them and put away for Christmas.
